USA v. Kember And Budlong et al.
Criminal Case No. 78-401
"The defendants, Jane Kember and Morris Budlong, were each
found guilty, following a jury trial, of nine counts of aiding and
abetting burglary in the second degree. The evidence which led the
jury to return these guilty verdicts revealed that during the years
1973 to 1976 the defendants ordered the commission of brazen,
systematic and persistent burglaries of United States Government
offices. Their purpose was to ransack these offices of all documents
of interest to the organization which they led -- the Guardian's
Office of the Church of Scientology -- in order to secure total
exemption from taxation and to protect Scientology's founder, L.
Ron Hubbard. In the process, from their headquarters in East
Grinstead, England, they challenged and attempted to undermine the
judicial and governmental structure of the United States. They did
so by fraudulently using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in
a manner never intended by the Congress of the United States."
